From one of the Hollywood trade sites: Bingham Ray has been ousted as head of United Artists in another failed bid to revive MGM's sister studio. It seems that UA can't re-establish itself as a studio with the box-office failure it has had lately. I believe I have the ultimate reason UA is failing...I can sum it up in two words... ...Lions Gate. UA had a chance to get the top prize in all independent films..."Dogville". But along comes Lions Gate. It seems that a "lion" has mauled someone United.
